3. Nikhil619

4. Camtron

6. Nikhil619

7. Camtron

8. Camtron

9. Nikhil619

10. rizwan_uet

subtract the constant first

11. Camtron

I know I have to minus or plus somthing :p

12. rizwan_uet

what you got??

13. Camtron

8

14. Nikhil619

ok so u have 8y-8 =0 left understand?

15. Camtron

yeah

16. rizwan_uet

now 8y +8 = 0 can you find y now???

17. Nikhil619

yeah sry 8y +8=0

18. Nikhil619

do u undestand how we got this?

19. Camtron

8y divided by somthing

20. Nikhil619

ok so now subtract by 8 on both sides of the equation...can u do that?

21. rizwan_uet

take the constant 8 to right side what you get ??

22. Camtron

??? minus 8 from 8 =0?

23. Nikhil619

yes...and 0-8=?

24. Camtron

0y+0=0?

25. Camtron

lol

26. rizwan_uet

hahaha its 8y + 8 - 8 = 0- 8

27. Nikhil619

nooo!! 8y +8 -8 =0 -8 so 8y=-8 so y=-1 get it?
